5 lições de carreira:
Para teres uma carreira de sucesso, é necessário que tenhas criatividade. O mercado de trabalho não está fácil. Nem sempre vais conseguir aquele emprego que sempre sonhaste da forma convencional. Além das formas convencionais e menos convencionais, é importante que possas contar com os teus contactos, garantindo que estás a fazer networking da forma correta.
2. Faz o que for necessário
Não estás qualificado para o trabalho? Qualifica-te. O mercado de trabalho é assim mesmo. Não há nada que não esteja ao teu alcance. Muito pode depender dos teus contactos, sorte e influência, mas se não tiveres garra, dificilmente sairás do mesmo lugar. Portanto, nunca te deves sentir limitado. Queres um emprego? Corre atrás.
3. Cuidado com as fofocas
Um simples comentário, uma simples brincadeira podem ser o suficiente para seres despedido. Queres colocar o teu sustento em jogo por causa de uma vontade de contar algo aos outros? segue esta regra em casa ou com os teus amigos. Guarda sempre os segredos que o teu chefe te pediu para guardar e melhora a tua imagem no trabalho: não te envolvass em intrigas.
4. Segue os teus sonhos, mas…
Qual é o maior indicador de sucesso em qualquer área? É a afinidade com ela. Quem poderá ser melhor do que tu se tu tens uma paixão por alguma coisa? Quando gostamos de algo, as coisas más parecem menores. E tudo de bom parece maior. Segue os teus sonhos, mas também deves ter um plano B de reserva. O máximo que te pode acontecer é teres que deixar esta paixão como hobby, em vez de ser o teu sustento. Mas antes de tudo, corre atrás do que te interessa.
Nenhum dinheiro do mundo justifica passar por cima dos outros, ou roubar. Não há nada que pague uma consciência limpa e tranquila, sem nada que a atormente à noite. Todo o esforço ético é recompensado. Deixa-te conduzir pela ética e, com certeza, serás mais feliz, mesmo que não sejas absurdamente rico.
I am 47. I say this for reference. Correction: more as an admonishment. I grew up in the 1980s, the decade of big hair and bigger shoulder pads. In short, a time when excess and indulgence were still cool. That being said, indulge me. Here goes:
I hate the whole organic food movement. Notice I said “movement,” because it is the mindset that is perverse and insufferable.
My hatred stems from the fact that this trend is a repudiation of my own working class background. Eating organic is eating more expensively and, in my opinion, often unnecessarily.
Just this morning as I was drinking my morning coffee with milk (more on this later), I almost choked when I saw the latest report on “Good Morning America.” The “next big super drink” sweeping the country in 2015, according to GMA, is organic birch tree water. The water is actually the sap…

Everywhere you turn, it seems, people are talking about how understanding context is the most important aspect of building a better web.
No one, though, has captured it as well as Code and Theory’s Dan Gardner, co-founder and executive creative director of the creative agency, and Mike Treff, managing partner of the agency’s product design group, who wrote an article for FastCompany titled “The Next Big Thing in Responsive Design.” (Among other accomplishments, Code and Theory redesigned the LA Times website and Mashable, and created award-winning marketing programs for Burger King, Dr Pepper and Maybelline New York.) Though the whole thing is worth reading, this is the sentence that matters most for our purposes:
“As brands become more publisher-like, they’ll also need to incorporate a responsive philosophy that adapts to the user so that they can reach them at the right time, with the right messaging, and an understanding of…

There has been a recurring thought concerning mobile phone security that has been on my mind lately, and as I have been discussing it with clients, it is beginning to make me nervous to know that others out there may not be as aware.
It started with this article I read that discusses the lack of support from mobile phone carriers for a ?kill switch? for our smartphones in case they are stolen. Why? Cell phone thefts currently account for 30 to 40 percent of all robberies nationwide, and cost U.S. consumers more than $30 billion in 2012 according to data from the Federal Communications Commission. Wireless carriers are generating a substantial amount of revenue through their insurance programs offered for smartphones. If our phones had a ?kill switch? (a means of completely disabling the phone), then there would be virtually no incentive for criminals to take them. As a result…

‘You’ve just finished your trip to the grocery store with your debit card, making sure to hide your pin number. But before you get home, the funds in your account are wiped clear. How did this happen?

Mobile advertising volume in India grew the fastest in the world, climbing a record 260% since July 2013, even as the larger Asia-Pacific region where ad impressions delivery rose 70% this year, emerged the fastest-growing region globally.
The IT industry creates new buzzwords every few years and this year everyone is talking about Internet of Things and Internet of Everything.
But what really is the true definition of IoT and what are its constituents? How should businesses prepare?
There are several definitions. But IoT or IoE is really about networks, devices, people and processes – and how these are all getting interconnected. The enabling technologies are mobility, cloud computing, big data analytics and social – a collective term for this is SMAC.
For IoT to be widely accepted and implemented, there are 2 or 3 things that need to happen:
